Human Lead Exposure consists of scientific reviews and important contributions intended to increase the understanding of the legal, social, and economic forces that have delayed effective prevention of lead toxicity. Chapters discuss the history (both ancient and recent) of lead, explore its neurobiology and toxicology, review the sources and routes to humans, and examine evidence that indicates that lead may affect humans at levels previously thought to be harmless. Neurobiologists, epidemiologists, public health officials, and others concerned about the effects of lead on the human population will find a tremendous amount of useful information in this timely volume.
